Immolate

 

- Start forming a 4L with Multistrike, Combustion, and Melee Splash.

- When you get an armour with 5 or 6L, you can add Close Combat and Immolate.

- When facing big bosses, replace Melee Splash with Elemental Damage With Attacks for more single target damage.

- When facing big bosses that require more control over your character, such as the sharper or queen Atziri, replace Flicker
Strike with Vaal Double Strike.

 

Armour:

Vaal Ancestral Warchief – Ancestral Protector – Multiple Totems – Dash – Summon Ice Golem – Blood Rage

 

- Ancestral Warchief and Ancestral Protector grant awesome attack damage and speed buffs. Thanks to Multiple
Totems, you can have the 2 buffs at the same time.

- Ice Golem grants extra accuracy and critical chance.

- Dash is a great movement skill.

- Blood Rage grants an amazing attack speed buff and generates frenzy charges.

- This setup doesn't need to be fully linked.

- Vaal Haste grants a big attack speed buff, and you can use it on bosses.

- Vaal Grace grants a big chance to avoid damage. Use it on bosses.

- Precision grants extra accuracy and critical chance.

Leveling

This build has an easy leveling process. It is beginner-friendly.

 

Tips

- From level 1 to 12, use Ground Slam.

- Then use Sunder until Level 28.

- Then, you can use Cyclone until level 67, when you will equip your Oro's Sacrifice and start
flickering.

 

Leveling setup of links:

- If this is your first character, do the following steps:

1. Create a Marauder.

2. Reach the first town.

3. Talk to Tarkleigh and pick Ground Slam as your reward.

4. Put your mace with Ground Slam and Ruthless in your stash.

- Now, when you create your scion, you'll have to use Spectral Throw until you reach the first
town. There you can grab your mace with Ground Slam and Ruthless in your stash.

 

 

 

- Reaching level 67, you can equip your Oro's Sacrifice.

- Now, replace the Cyclone setup with the Flicker Strike one.

- If you have a 5L or 6L Oro's Sacrifice, you can use the complete setup.

- Also, at level 67, you can replace Herald of Purity with Anger.

- As soon as you get an Enlighten at level 3, you can also activate Precision and complete
your auras.
